  • GOLF: Robinson named tour's Player of the Year

    To say Lee Robinson dominated the Musselman-Dunne golf tour this summer might be like saying The Masters' is a big tournament.

    It is a major understatement.

    Robinson, a rising senior at Anderson County High School, was named the tour's Player of the Year last Tuesday after winning the Kentucky Junior Golf Foundation championship tournament at Big Spring Country Club in Louisville.

    Robinson won the two-day tournament handily with a 154 (79-75) to defeat Dillon Biddle, of Paris, by seven strokes. Hunter Rowe, of Winchester, was third with a 169.

    Brian Royalty, an Anderson County native who lives in Cynthiana, led all but one lap of the Karl Jones Memorial 100 for the Corbin Speedway Late Model Series on July 13, but that doesn’t mean that his victory came easy.

    For the first 11 laps, he had to hold off Jason Jones of London in a side-by-side battle for the lead, and that pattern was repeated after each double-file restart following four caution periods.
